The Hamlet is the beginning of William Faulkner's beloved trilogy of the Snopes family. Published in 1940, it begins with the central character, "Flem Snopes." The setting is Faulkner's fictional southern "Yoknapatawpha County"; a post Cival War era Mississippi community of "Frenchmen's Bend." True to Faulkner's writing style, reader's are quickly swept into the story as Flem begins his tenacious scheme to prosper as a wealthy farmer. When Flem marries Eula Varner, who is pregnant with another man's child, Flem's drive to dominate in prosperity begins to deteriorate to reckless acts of betrayal regardless of personal integrity. As time passes and Flem moves into what he believes is a prominant position of wealth and power, Faulkner has given readers a view of the characters that is layered with multiple dynamics. Faulkner was a master story teller who allowed readers to become deeply engrossed in the lives of his characters; never quite knowing what to expect. The best way to read and enjoy William Faulkner's work is to simply open the book and let the story unfold.
